Lions Jim Schwartz calls Titus Young's recent play 'outstanding'
ALLEN PARK — One way to make others forget off-field transgressions is to be outstanding on the field.
That’s the tactic taken by Lions wide receiver Titus Young who wasn’t allowed to participate in Organized Team Activities when they started in May because he has sucker-punched his teammate Louis Delmas.
Young is making up for lost time in the last few weeks of OTAs and again this week in the mandatory minicamp.
His play is off the charts and it’s not just the media that has noticed.
“He’s had a good run since he’s been back with the team,’’ coach Jim Schwartz said. “He’s made big plays in just about every practice, he’s worked hard, he’s been a good teammate.
“He’s looked the best I’ve ever seen him look in this couple week span. We just need to keep him on that track because he’s been, he’s been outstanding the last couple weeks,’’ Schwartz said.
The coach hesitated before using the word outstanding, but he said it.
